Title of the study : Detection and automatic follow-up of the motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s disease

Principle Investigator : Christian Duval, PhD

Co-Investigator : Benoit Carignan, PhD candidate

Site address : Centre de recherche de l’IUGM, 4545 Queen-Mary, H3W 1W4

Background: The research team of  Dr. Duval is currently engaged in the development of a detection system and automatic evaluation of motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease that is able to measure the body mouvement in 3D. This tool, named Exo- imaging test (TEI) will be extremely precise, fast, flexible and unbiased.

Purpose of the study : The aim of the present study is to develop a system for detecting and automatic evaluation of motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease and validate the TEI assessment with clinical tests
